Jin’s awesome red meat loving brother-in-law here. Disclaimer: I eat a lot of beef. I’m embarrassed to admit I used to be that guy that put frozen steaks into a George Foreman grill, but those days are thankfully in the past. Now that I’m older (but not necessarily wiser), I decided it’s time to step up into the big leagues of bovine and purchase my own cow, or rather half a cow. I mean who wouldn’t want 200 pounds of beef? I typically buy my meat from a local butcher (Patton’s), but I had heard about people buying an animal straight from a farm so I wanted to try it for myself. Henceforth, I detail my findings and experience for your reading pleasure.
